whole when you take the elements to get there working together whether engineering or enforcement or education. and when you take a separate item like education if you were to just take one element of that and just look at pedestrian that's the best way to educate people on this issue then you forget about the other two larger groups go so you're absolutely right if we're going to do education we need to target drivers and bicyclists. so the only comment i have with the diagram with the subcommittee i feel like one group that needs to be highlighted would be the san francisco unified school district. they there's a couple of reasons
for that. most of the education and projects that if you look at the activities by lead agencies will be focusing on adult and not necessarily our children. and by having the unified school district there which serves the largest number of children in inform we could maybe get them involved in seeing how they could start the education process at an earlier age and when you have the safe passages that's in partnership with the san francisco city anyway i've been working with the school district to implement or bring back the old program of the students being safety guards safety patrol gaurtdz. the only one school that started it that will be starting it soon
but the principle calls us back after two weeks and said not only did the children participating at safety guards learn about safety and getting coaching and lessons from the police officers but it's changed the culture of the people driving through the intersections. and when a one of the things that helped change the culture there were police officers there that helped to enforce our laws and gave a few of the parents tickets and having a few of the parents getting tickets their all of a sudden slowing down additional actually letting people cross the street without rushing through there to save ten seconds to drop off kids.
it's why the unified school district should be on there >> it's a great recommendation we'll make sure their added. supervisor mar. >> i'm in total agreement with supervisor yee but our district like our community police and sf safe are launched by commander sharon when she was in charge of the office but i'm hoping that community and stakeholders includes effort. i go to a lot of pta meetings and as supervisor yee is menacing see they'll be a key group as well. thank you for your work >> thank you. >> i don't think so any other
comments. any public comment on that item? okay seeing none, public comment is closed. i'll turn it back to supervisor kim >> item 6 is the introductory of new items. >> are there any new items today? seeing none, let's move on to public comment item 7 >> this is general public comment and if one wishes to comment seeing none, public comment is closed. i wanted to thank the colleagues and members of the public for coming to our very first subcommittee of the transportation authority. i'm enlisted about the dialog and hopefully about the outcomes we're to push and see for more coordination among our departments to make the city safer we're all pedestrians at
one point or another. we've had interesting questions hopefully, we'll continue the dialogues and the next meeting will be in june and it will be great great to get a response in terms of looking at the project delivery to my left timelines and the role that sfmta can play in enforcement and how we can fund and really resource this policy to become a reality to get to zero everyone. thank you and meeting is @pyo.
